    Unable to post using original ID

    Hi

    I recently signed in with an ID I have had for years - but have not used for a while. I was informed that i need to update my profile to be able to post, however when i clicked on my profile to update it then said i sis not have access to do so. Can anyone please advise?

    Obviously I have signed up again with a different ID to ask this question! as I knew no other way to contact.

    Thanks kindly

    Unfortunately, yes, You have to have a certain number of posts before you can PM. - I think it's ten.

    As this is effectively your private thread, why not post seven messages with just a '.' in each? That should boost you to the ten you need.

    I wouldn't normally suggest this, but it seeems reasonable on this occasion. You can always delete them later if you wish - after you have sorted out your current problem.
